    I purchased my first Acan frag about a week ago and I love it- it's a pretty neon orange color. I'm curious as to how fast and also how they grow? The frag I have had two heads on it- do the heads split into multiples or do they grow out externally? Also- my frag seems to have some neon...

    I'm suspecting my grazers are nipping my acans causing them to stay closed up. Nothing changed equipment wise and all levels are still good I read horror stories about people losing acans to their tangs. I Have some pretty expensive acans and would hate to lose them. Im giving them nori...

    I am having difficulties getting both zoas and acans established in my tank. I am on my 3rd try with an acan and 4th or 5th with zoas. I just can't seem to get them going. I have several other corals (mushrooms, duncans, frogspawn, etc) which are doing fine in the tank. I am looking for...

    Yesterday I woke up to find the malted shell of my skunk ckeaner laying next to my acans. I saw what I thought was part of the shell in the acans mouth, and the rest floating nearby attached to the acan as it slowly pulled the shell in. I didnt see the shrimp and figured hes hiding in the rocks...

    TRT kind of in panic mode. Purchased a frag of rainbow acans Friday they were acclimating nicely until this mornkng. I woke up to find them face down in the sand. I've been researching and not sure if the tissue has receeded or if they will recover. Should I be worried?

    Hey everyone! Been forever since my last post here, but I havent been out of the game. I moved about 6 months ago from an apartment to a house, and I had to break down my old 40 gallon mixed reef. It was quite the task for me, as I had to tear everything down, put all of the livestock into...

    Hi everyone, yesterday and today my GSP have been closed. I tested for nitrate and phosphate assuming one of them were one of the culprits. But they were not and I just let the tank be. Today, when I got home, I saw they were still closed and that my acans were not their usual inflated selves. I...

I have 2 small zoanthid frags each with 4 polyps (1 frag had 25 polyps until the chocolate chip starfish mowed it over) and an acan coral. Over the past week she acan flesh, for lack of a better term, has started receding and the spiny...

    I bought a very nice acan a couple months back and everything was going fine. It was a small colony of about six or seven. The first two months things were looking good and it started to grow 4-5 new heads/mouths. I was very happy but it didn't last long. It soon started to bleach. At first i...
